What great sadness, but John Fiedler, who lent his voice to the Winne the Poo character Piglet, and Paul Winchell, who voiced Tigger, have both passed on.
I remember watching Mr. Winchell perform regularly on his Winchell-Mahoney Show on TV when I was a kid. It was a regular for me, right along with Soupy Sales and Wonderama.
He was a very talented ventriloquist, who created characters Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead Smith.
Mr. Fiedler was a popular character actor -- a slightly portly, balding and spectacled fellow -- was a regular on a wide range of TV shows, from the Odd Couple to Star Trek to Bob Newhart.
Sorry to see them both go.
